Our excellent Practice Buddies Anna Obbagy (who is also one of our regular accompanists) and Joe Burke are trying to raise funds to attend a language course in France in June. They are offering house concerts by their trio (clarinet, viola, piano) and they have started a gofundme page to help them reach their goal. If you are interested in having these talented young musicians perform in your home or if you are able to provide some help for them to reach their goal of $5000 by June, please email Anna at email@example.com or visit their gofundme site:
Thanks for your consideration.
